Ronda Rousey has been back in the gym for over three months since she suffered from defeat in her UFC career for the second time. Now, it seems like she manages to enjoy her time off the ring.

The 30-year-old mixed martial artist recently posted video clip on Instagram that made many of her followers jokingly sorry for another loss. This was against an 11-year-old child. Ronda Rousey was humble enough to teach him judo and demonstrate herself as a loser while the kid swift sweep of her left leg. 

According to Washington Post, Rousey served as a teacher to a judo kid named Jaxton Lundell. The report cited that the former 30-year-old champ was teaching him "Ashi Waza," also known as judo foot techniques. While Lundell seems to be pretty proud that Rousey slipped to the ground, a man who seemed to be taking the video shouts,  “You gotta finish! You gotta pin her!”

Moreover, Rousey chuckles as well because the kid should have made his second move to finish off the match. The Olympic Judo medalist usually ends her opponents with a signature move called 'arm-bar submission.' This was before her defeat in two UFC matches. Since 2012, Rousey fought for the UFC’s inaugural women’s title.

However, her reign ended in 2015 against Holly Holm after defending the crown for over six times. Rousey tried to redeem herself last month against current women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes but she failed. Even UFC president Dana White doubts that she will return on stage again.

As per The Guardian, White said, "I think she’s probably done. I think she’s going to ride off into the sunset and start living her life outside of fighting.” Furthermore, Ronda Rousey is reportedly making her way into the Hollywood. She was recently seen in an episode of  “Drunk History” (Comedy Central) and is set to appear on NBC series "Blindspot."
